A doctor who did forensic medical examinations for the Metropolitan Police and fiddled over £300,000 of tax, was found guilty of tax fraud this week – but got away with a slap on the wrist at Isleworth Crown Court this week.
For over 11 years, Dr Khaled Yasin, aged 64 of Pickering House, Windmill Road, Ealing, under-declared £650,000 of his income from the Met., where he worked as a Forensic Medical Examiner. He evaded £300,000 of taxes and now also owes £50,000 in interest.
His massive tax evasion was uncovered by the tax inspectors when they examined information they had gathered as part of their HMRC Tax Health Plan Disclosure Campaign. If he had come forward and made a voluntary disclosure when was campaign running he would not have been prosecuted. On the other hand, he would have had to pay financial penalties: which he will now avoid as he has received a criminal record instead.
He was found guilty of 8 charges of Cheating the Public Revenue contrary to Common Law; and was given a 2 year suspended sentence and was ordered to do 200 hours of community work.
